The history of the Avenida Palace dates back to the year 1952 when the legendary Casa Llibre tea room and restaurant closed its doors. Ernest Hemingway, Joan Miró and Liza Minnelli are among the countless famous personalities who have been guests of the hotel. The Avenida Palace is ideally situated in the midst of one of the city’s most emblematic areas. It has witnessed countless important events that have become part of the history of Barcelona. Perhaps the most unforgettable for the people of Spain was the arrival of the Beatles at the hotel on 3 July 1965. That’s why the Avenida Palace decided to commemorate this great occasion by transforming the room they occupied into a themed suite as a well-deserved tribute to the boys from Liverpool.
Casa LLibre – restaurant and café
The historic Casa LLibre, which opened in 1925, was a meeting place where people would go to enjoy an array of gastronomic and cultural delights such as chocolates and objets d’art although its most important role was that of a restaurant and tea room. That’s why gastronomy is such an important aspect of the Avenida Palace culture. Nobody can fail to be impressed by the culinary experiences offered at the hotel. These are the traditional dishes you have always loved, now served in a fully refurbished restaurant with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The ideal place for savouring our “Executive Menu” and new buffet breakfast service.
